“Cold Weather is coming”

The leaves on the trees are beautiful this time of year. All the bright colors, as a mural of life. It is a pretty time of year, but also reminds us that winter is coming.

At my house winterizing is checking the ant-freeze in my autos, unhooking garden hoses and rolling the up, covering stand pipes and wrapping them in heat tape. Make sure all vents are closed to the house foundation to keep pipes from freezing.

It is also very important to winterize your animals. Most important is water.  Dogs, cats, especially your equines need good clean “warm” water. Your water tanks may not be icing yet, but that water is still very cold. If not yet done, water tank heaters should be placed. This is a time when Colic is more prevalent. Horses don’t always drink as they should when their water is cold.

So put in your heaters, bundle up yourselves and your property. Protect all from the cold. Have a warmer winter
